Street Food Asia

Whether eating fiery som tum on a bustling Bangkok street, slurping pho in Vietnam perched on a red plastic stool, inhaling the galangal, lemongrass and coconut-infused air of Jakarta, or being seduced by heady wafts of succulent satay as it grills in Kuala Lumpur, there’s nothing more alluring than street food.

In Street Food Asia readers can join Luke Nguyen on a stroll through the heady, fragrant backstreets of Asia to discover street food at its very best.

For Luke discovering local street food is the best way to understand a place and instantly feel connected to it. It’s his ultimate buzz and the fact that it comes complete with flames, steam, smoke, smells, sounds, colour, heat, energy, good vibes and a ton of flavour, only makes it better.

Take an adventure with Luke in Street Food Asia to some of his favourite Asian nooks and crannies – places where fantastic street food still reigns supreme. From main streets to back alleys, Luke shares his insider knowledge, venturing out with acclaimed photographer Alan Benson at dawn and late into the night to meet roaming street vendors and stallholders – and bring one of the world’s richest food traditions to life.
